Solo travel is an empowering experience that is no longer perceived as being only for brave souls and daring adventurers. The interest in travelling solo has skyrocketed in recent years, and this boom continues to grow.
Why Croatia Cruises Are Perfect For Solo Travellers
With so many solo travel holidays to choose from, it can be confusing knowing which is the ideal trip for you. If you want to enjoy an unforgettable experience that offers luxury accommodation, gourmet food, an itinerary that’s packed with activities and stunning destinations then small ship cruising offers the ultimate travel package for you.
Our Croatia cruises set sail on a voyage of discovery, and visit beautiful historic cities, enchanting towns and idyllic islands. As you unwind in a relaxing environment, you’ll enjoy a great number of benefits…
A VIP Service
There are just 38 passengers on board, so you get to know everyone.
Unlike the big cruise ships that carry thousands of passengers, small ship Croatia cruises comfortably accommodate an intimate number of guests. The average number of passengers on board is just 38. This means that the crew can give more of their attention to you, and you can enjoy the VIP treatment.
The atmosphere on board our Croatia cruises is warm, friendly and welcoming. Guests are initially brought together via their love of travel but quickly discover that they have other things in common. You’ll be introduced to the captain, crew and your fellow travellers at the Welcome reception, so there’s no need to worry about breaking the ice. As we sail the Adriatic, you’ll have time to get to know everyone on board.
An Immersive Experience
You get right into the heart of the destination.
Croatia cruises visit a selection of handpicked destinations in order to give you an unforgettable travel experience. On the mainland you can join private guided tours to learn about the historic cities and charming towns from local English-speaking, knowledgeable guides. Whilst you’re there, take a stroll through Spilt’s Diocletian’s Palace or explore Dubrovnik’s Old Town.
When island-hopping, our small Croatia cruise ships can access remote and secluded islands that big cruise vessels simply cannot reach, without transferring to a tender.
Enjoy delicious local dining on board.
One of the great pleasures of travel is sampling the traditional cuisine of the region and country that you’re visiting. On Croatia cruises your day begins with a freshly prepared buffet breakfast. Gourmet lunch is often served on board, in stunning secluded bays. The three-course meals are inspired by each destination and are expertly prepared by our chef. Only the finest and freshest locally sourced ingredients are used to create the culinary delights that will tickle your taste buds.
You won’t feel lonely at mealtimes on board, as all guests sit together on large, beautifully laid tables. This gives you the opportunity to get to know your fellow passengers and talk to new people at each meal time.
On some of our cruises you are able to observe our chef at work, and to shop in the local market for the ingredients. As Croatian cuisine is greatly influenced by the tastes and traditions of the countries that have previously ruled the nation, you can expect to sample a diverse selection of delicacies, of typical Mediterranean fayre.
Spend your evenings having dinners in charming restaurants on shore with your new friends.
People are surprisingly welcoming and friendly towards travellers that are going it alone. Wherever you go, you’ll find it easy to interact and connect with strangers. Local people will be keen to strike up a conversation with you, especially if you make a little effort in speaking their language.
On Croatia cruises you’ll get to know your fellow guests as you explore the beautiful mainland and stunning islands. Whilst you can choose to dine alone, in the local restaurants, it’s just as easy to spend your evenings with a group of like-minded new friends. Dining alfresco with a bunch of interesting people creates happy memories of your Croatia cruise experience. As you tuck into the freshest seafood or authentic dishes that are uniquely Croatian, in the company of your fellow solo travellers and cruise companions, you will enjoy a first-class socialising experience in awe-inspiring surroundings.
